The romance in This Shadow begins at the start of the holiday season with Thanksgiving. This recipe for Cherry Salad, a traditional holiday menu feature for my family, was no doubt served by Oriana’s sister at their Thanksgiving meal. Though we love this dessert-like salad at Thanksgiving, it’s a terrific summer dish with lots of romantic appeal in its sweet, red-themed deliciousness. Best of all, it’s a breeze to throw together and can be made up to one day in advance!

1 14-oz. can sweetened condensed milk
1 20-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained

About the book – This Shadow:
She’s famous for her upbeat outlook. Then the world goes black.
Oriana Sanders is always happy. And why shouldn’t she be? She enjoys a close relationship with God and a purpose-filled career teaching troubled kids. She even has the potential for romance in her sister’s friend, Nicanor, whose dark good looks and brooding manner make him an intriguing project for Oriana.
Oriana’s attempts to reach Nicanor with the joy of the Lord are brought to a halt when a confrontation with her student’s drug-dealing brother ends in tragedy. Facing darkness she has never known, can Oriana learn to forgive the unforgivable and find her way through the shadows to the light?
